    Evenepoel was reportedly conscious in the wake of the crash, being able to “respond clearly to questions”.

    Denmark's Jakob Fuglsang's victory at the Tour of Lombardy was effectively overshadowed by an incident involving Belgium's Remco Evenepoel who ended up crashing his bike into a wall and falling into a ravine on the descent from the Colma di Sormano that leads to the race's finish.

    According to road.cc, Evenepoel was apparently “conscious and able to respond clearly to questions” following his fall, adding that “his right leg and side were said to have taken the impact”.

    As Evenepoel was promptly rushed to the hospital, with his team tweeting that he's now being “tended to by the doctors”, a video that appears to depict the moment of his crash emerged online.
